The IGA is seeking a temporary, part time Technical Project Manager (or team) to assist the IGA to meet its responsibilities with respect to a joint IGA-ESMAP-IRENA pilot program to trial the application of UNFC Geothermal Specifications through Workshops in several regions around the world. This is a desk-top communication and data collation task. No travel is anticipated. The Technical Project Manager will liaise directly with local partners to assemble, collate and present supporting data, and help prepare subsequent reports to enable the Deliverables:

Report summarizing activities, participants and outcomes after each Workshop;

Summaries of geothermal resources in each region as classified under the UNFC, with supporting data for dissemination via IRENA’s renewable energy atlas;

A final report for ESMAP summarizing the key lessons learned from the pilot program.

Task description:

Specific tasks to achieve these goals include:

  • Provide technical advice and feedback to local partners to gather and provide relevant geothermal project data for their region;

  • Assess assembled data for completeness against the UNFC Resource Report Checklist (attached);

  • Ideally assemble the data for each geothermal project into a concise package for consideration and classification during in-country Workshops;

  • Provide regular (at least weekly) updates to the Chairman of the IGA R&RC.

    Required skills and experience:

  • Broad understanding of, and experience with, UNFC in general and UNFC Geothermal Specifications in particular;

  • Good understanding of the terminology and concepts in the UNFC texts;

  • Good interpersonal skills;

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English;

  • Flexible work times;

Most of the work will be required prior and shortly after the regional Workshops. Details are yet to be confirmed, but indicative locations and dates are:
  • St Lucia (Eastern Caribbean), 5-7 December 2018;
  • Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), date TBC in early 2019;
